by trying to lean against the forces of technological and economic change. and it seems to me that's what this debate's about. schoumacher: with industry and jobs on the line, pressure mounted on president jimmy carter. americans deserve protection from predatory pricing practices from abroad, but congressman dingell might lead congress to pass outright quotas, which could wreck the complex and delicate framework of world trade. as the crisis reached its peak, carter turned to one of the country's experts on international trade and finance, deputy treasury secretary anthony solomon. solomon's solution -- the trigger price mechanism. use the japanese production price as the trigger for starting dumping investigations. everybody in the world accepted the fact that japanese cost production were the lowest in the world. and therefore, if you sold below that, then there was good grounds fon that you were dumping, you were not covering your cost of production, which was the finition under the law. the idea was to meet their legitimate complnt about dumping in a way that would be less disruptiv

's where we are at this point. lisa, transportation experts have talked about technology that may, and we underline that, may have prevented the crash. what can you tell bus that? >> reporter: it's called positive train control, and it essentially takes over the train if the engineer fails to brake or slow down when he should. the ntsb says they have been pushing for this for decades, and they went so far as to saying it could have prevented this crash if it was on this train. it's mandated it's a few years away. >> lisa, thank you. it's political crisis that has changen thailand's capitol for a week. prime minister yingluck shinawatra ordered police to stop battling with anti-government protesters. the majority of the protesters are middle and upper class residents of bangkok who have been fighting with people from poor and rural areas who support the prime minister. now the protesters have accused the prime minister of being a proxy for her brother, former prime minister who was ousted in a coup in 2006. they accuse her government of being corrupt. we have more. >> reporter: it was expe

25 years set to expire. there's new technology complicating the debate on capitol hill, a group called wiki weapons developed a program that lets you develop guns with a 3d printer in your own home. these rb tested. the atf found the first one they printed exploded but the second gun fired eight rounds of live ammo. these printed guns are invisible to metal detectors and that's what makes them illegal. so the '88 undetectable firearms act forbids any firearm that doesn't set off an x-ray machine or metal detector. gun owners can insert a metal part into any plastic gun to make it legal. but the idea of 3d printing has touched off a new controversy over the old ban. the house could simply extend the old ban for another ten years but some gun control advocates say that doesn't go far enough anymore. chuck schumer calls the house bill "better than nothing but not good enough. we absolutely must close the loophole that allows anyone to legally make a gun that could be rendered invisible to law enforcement." joining us today from capitol hill, covering today's expected vote, a couple

and derailed in bridgeport, connecticut. some experts argue that the technology exists and could help prevent deadly accidents like sunday's derailment. jake ward joins us from san francisco with that. jake, what sort of technology are we talking about? >> john, it's called a positive control system. positive train control is where the ntsb i has been pushing for0 years. the combination of gps sensors, sensors in the tracks, control sensors and remote control in the trains to compensate when a driver has been disabled, incapacitated or not paying attention. >> is there any difference between passenger trains and freight trains and the technology that they have? >> well, the difference really has to do with just how incredibly dangerous a train can be depending on what it's carrying. we've seen in new york the dangerous situation where trains are full the people. but even trains without people on board canner dangerous. in 2005 in south carolina, there was a terrible crash in which a tanker full of chlorine basically atomized in the air and a cloud of this poisonous gas caused the evacuation o
will die that don't have to. >> reporter: positive train control uses satellite technology to transmit signals from thousands of sensors on tracks in trains along railways to a bank of central control computers. if a train is going too fast approaching the curve-- like the metro north train in new york sunday-- the system first will warn the conductor. if there's no human response the system will respond. >> positive train control can take over controls of the train and slow it down safely so there's no jamming on the emergency brake at the last moment or trying to fix a problem after it's already started. this is designed to prevent accidents from happening. >> reporter: katz says l.a. is on track to have the system in place a year before the 2015 congressional mandate. there are many train systems that say they can't meet that. it's too expensive too soon. >> we're spending close to $220 million on the system here. i don't know how you put a price tag on lives saved or accidents avoided. >> reporter: scott, los angeles will begin testing the system this month. operators of metro nort

infrastructure? >> if the engineer had dropped dead we have technology that would automatically be able to see the speed the train was traveling, be able to detect a curve and stop the train. it is an automatic brakes control the train should have had and most countries already have that. so the government has to do that because those may private sector have to think in terms of profit as opposed to their lives. the federal government has to negotiate. connell: they are already doing that in new york on metro-north, it is just not mandated yet. this happened before that went into effect. >> that is where the federal government comes in. god knows we need controls and regulation, and we have to make certain technology is there. dagen: should taxes supplement that? supplement commuter rail and those things commuters use by taxing people driving into the city. >> we would not even have to think about having additional taxes placed on taxpayers who are already overburdened if we close the loopholes that are involved, increase the taxes, lowering the taxes for the wealthiest. they should be closed.
believe that will remain and technology needs to develop to meet that base demand. >> one of the big success of smartphones is cost of data. is that going to come down? >> i think this will, of course, bring things down. we need to be more efficient in our equipment. but also the scale will push down the price of the hand sets. we made the rough calculation that will reduce the dollars on a smartphone, 100 million people on this earth can afford it. and this is a scale of markets where basically the same technology is very important. >> one of the problems i think i have is not speed. i know we talk about 3g to 4g. it's actually capacity. it doesn't matter how fast you go, if it gets full, it doesn't work, right? how is capacity going to change? >> a couple of things. first of all, you need to invest in capacity and operators in general are doing that. secondly, we that spend $5 billion u.s. a year, we need to have even more sophisticated technology that can handle more and more data loans, more and more frequencies. that's where we're doing all the time to actually capture that and

especially when it comes to technology? that's a contradiction, it, kayleigh? >> it's true that's a contradiction yet, i think that americans, one thing that we have we're well-rounded. there's an emphasis on sports, on other activities and an emphasis on entrepreneurship and all of those things combine to make a well-rounded wholesome individual. that being said the lack of academics, the lack of education can have a real effect in generations to come. if we don't remedy the issue and em bolden our schools and create well-rounded individuals it's going to hurt in the long run. >> i've got to tell you something, we've got a false security in talking technology stuff. when i go to hospitals and look at the surgeons, i see, i don't know, maybe it's because i've been to new york and california and well over 50% of the top surgeons are either-- weren't born here or their parents weren't born here. think about silicon valley for a moment and the companies created right now. about 40% are from people from outside of this country. they're begging, they're lobbying washington to let hem
to embrace. i previously -- above and beyond, we are investing $24 million additionally in technology. one of the things that amazes me about education and government in general, our underinvestment in technology cripples us. common core was decided on before i was governor of the state of connecticut. i was not one of the founders of the concept. i embrace it. based on scholastic poll -- 72% of teachers embrace it. the remaining folks are undecided about the issue. those teachers who have thought about it and studied it and have been doing their preparatory work do believe that concentrating on fewer things, but going deeper is the right way to go. you have the legislative package. you have a new evaluation system. it is not easy. that has to be made clear. once we get through this, we are going to have a clear road to higher achievement in our schools. we will get away from this concept that we have an obligation to distribute opportunity. hold ourselves responsible. several of our lowest performing school districts, we need to hold ourselves, the governor, the mayors, the parents, the t
